Rhythmic Building Bricks

Posted by lbbartolomeo on July 17, 2012

From my Orff classes and “Elementaria” by Keetman, I created what are called RHYTHMIC BUILDING BRICKS out of these foam cubes I found at Target in the $1 section.  I used a Sharpie to draw on the notes.

     Both sides have a rhythm so many combinations can be created.

     The bags are ideal for partners so in the tub at left, I have enough for a class of 34.

The blocks in the below picture are available for sale from Etsy!!!

    Love this! I’ve made something similar using one beat per side. We roll them and put them in ice trays to “compose”. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    I have a similar product that I actually patented and sell. It’s using legos as the building blocks so kids can feel the subdivision of the beats and build melodies above beat, rhythm, etc. You can check them out at http://www.etsy.com/shop/beatblocks.
